Honors Projects


Every year over two million men, women, and children around the world are affected by malaria, a disease that can easily be prevented with awareness, education, and support. In April 2014 I held a malaria event in which guests had the opportunity to witness the effects malaria has on people, not just physically, but emotionally and economically as well. The death rate has moved from one person every 30 seconds to one every 60 seconds since 2010. The improvement in the rate of deaths has resulted from the increase in awareness of this disease. It is my goal with this project to do just that, I want to raise awareness of the issue, educate those in the community, and hopefully in doing so I will gain the support needed to help eradicate malaria by 2015; malaria can be stopped.
